Tuesday, 28 February 2017
Coal mining has been stopped due to the movement of coal mine workers at Barapukuria in Dinajpur. One thousand and fifty workers, working in the coal mine, called strike for the demand of permanent jobs on Sunday.
Meanwhile, they called incursion from their respective positions and that’s why, about 350 workers are shut inside the earth.
Abu Sufian, general secretary of Barapukuria Coal Mine Workers’ Union, informed that about one thousand and fifty laborers are working on the basis of per day payment from the beginning of the mine. They cannot run their family with only 300 tk per day. That’s why, they are demanding for permanent jobs for a long time. But they are bound to go for this firm movement since the authority do not respond to their demands.
Organizing secretary of Barapukuria Coal Mine Workers’ Union, Ehsanul Haque Sohag said, “About 350 laborers inside the mine are starving for the strike started from Sunday. Inside the Earth, they announced that if their demand for permanent job is not fulfilled, they will sacrifice their lives inside the earth.”
About the matter, managing director of Barapukuria Coal Mining Compani Ltd Nurul Aorangazeb told the reporters, “The laborers, gone for movement, are the workers of Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Limited’s contracting organization. So there is no scope for their permanent jobs. However, their facilities may be increased by negotiation.”
